Well not directly but here's my story. I own a Linn Ikemi and I compared it to the DV50S and felt on redbook the differnces were neglegible if that. I fell in favor of the Ikemi and still have it. The other day I was able to A-B with the Ayre and the Ikemi and no question there. The Ayre was much more detailed and precise in the music. Things like the plucking of the pick on guitars, the echoing rings of the piano notes. Just a much improved sound field. I am waiting till the funds are there but I will more than likely be listing my Ikemi here and buying the Ayre. As far as the Bel Canto I haven't had the pleasure yet. No dealers in the area. One last note I have met the guys from Ayre and they arereally super people and the dealer tells me they are great at customer relations.
